Do you have accounts setup on the server for the other computers and the account rights set so they can do what they need to?

After more digging, I found the answer:

Click Start | My Computer | Tools | Folder Options | View.

Scroll to the bottom of the list of advanced settings and un-check Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended).

Click OK.

You'll be all set.
